    Travel  and  Lodging

      Teachers and designated chaperones may apply for funding to support travel to the IJSHS. To apply:

      • Complete the Travel Accommodations Form to attend IJSHS by February 9, 2018. Travel assistance will be determined by funding availability and demonstration of coordination with other school(s)/teacher(s) and number of students attending the IJSHS. It may not be possible to award a full travel reimbursement, but we hope to offset some of the costs of transportation to the IJSHS. Chaperones/teachers/schools must submit a W-9 form in order to be reimbursed. 

      IJSHS will cover lodging costs and make hotel reservations.

      • Teachers/chaperones: when completing the lodging information on the Travel Accommodations Form for IJSHS, please list students who will room together and list a roommate preference for yourself if applicable. Teachers can plan to room with another teacher of the same gender. We will do our best to accommodate roommate requests. Teachers and chaperones requesting a private room, or who are bringing a spouse, must pay an additional $100 for this option and include this fee with registration fees postmarked by February 16, 2018.
